The anticipation and frenzy never stopped for us the moment we decided to announce a contest to share our love and celebrate Drishti’s turning one. To be honest, we were also a bit apprehensive about the participation. But our readers and friends overwhelmed us once more and left us amazed. Even better, our friend Preeti Shenoy agreed to do the honours to pick the best three creative one-liners which proclaimed their love for Drishti in the most ingenious way. We kept the contest open from January 29th until February 4th to ensure that none of our friends missed writing for us. A whooping 49 people put their thoughts to paper… in this case – the computer/ phone and made Drishti’s First Blog Anniversary an event to remember for years to come.Drishti Blog Anniversary Contest: Winners Announcement #blogging Click To Tweet
Am sure it must have been tough for Preeti to select three entries for the INR 1500 Amazon GVs. But she spent a lot of time reading all the entries and here are her picks in no particular order:
- Arvind Passey – “You’re so much like a one-liner… always saying a lot more than the words used.”
- Simran Kaur – ”Drishti: an insight to dreams and beyond, a journey of love for words and friendship bond.”
- Swati Bassi – “A soulful journey of two people, one is love and other is passion.”
Message from Preeti to the winners:
Apologies won’t be able to leave a comment as I am sending this between my travels for promos of #WhyWeLoveTheWayWeDo. Congrats to the winners!

To me Drishti is,
The spark of one’s eyes
The warmth that melts the frozen ice
The vibrancy that’s added to life’s panorama
Mammoths of maturity and heaps of hungama
A year old baby of Desh and Archie,
Aah! It’s bliss to visit you every day, my Drishti!
- Deeshani Batra
Drishti is “A vision to connect to your soul, an observation to uncover the beauty lying in this world and a blissful experience for wanderlust.”
